=============================================================================

ServoCenter-3.1 is a Python module for interacting with the ServoCenter 3.1 USB controller board by Yost Engineering, Inc.

For more information, see http://www.davisd.com/projects/servocenter-3.1/

For more information on ServoCenter, see http://tech.yostengineering.com/servoFolder

Example usage is as follows::

#!/usr/bin/python

from servocenter import ServoController

# open port /dev/ttyUSB0 with baud rate 9600
sc=ServoController('/dev/ttyUSB0', 9600)

# move board 0, servo 0 to position 200
sc.quick_move(0, 0, 200)


Installation
============

A setup script (setup.py) is provided. To install, simply run the script with the install command:

$ python setup.py install

Or just put servocenter.py somewhere in the Python path and::

import servocenter


API
===

A ServoController object is created with two arguments- the port name and baud rate.

The methods in the ServoController class reflect the functions of the board as defined in the official protocol. For protocol documentation, see http://tech.yostengineering.com/servoFolder/servocenter-downloads/servocenter-downloads

To see available methods, view the servocenter.py file.
